This weekend, I officially purged my fantasy roster of Brett Favre

Join me as a we do some breathing exercises so we can focus on winning. 

Breathe in, breathe out. (five times should do the trick)

Now I have to deal with a mini-quarterback controversy on Sunday.

Jon Kitna or Matt Cassel at quarterback?

We'll answer that question after a night of deliberation.  

Stay tuned for an update on Sunday morning.  


Kitna or Cassel?

For the second week in a row.  I have to go with the old man in John Kitna.

The recent lights out play of the Oakland Raiders, holding the Seahawks to three points and limiting Jay Cutler to under 200 passing yards deserve to get noticed.

Their improving defense makes the already-not-so-impressive Matt Cassel a tough guy to start today.  If the secondary gives Cassel fits, I wouldn't be surprise to see the running duo of Jones and Charles being deployed almost every play.

Kitna on the other hand will get a chance to throw to his heart's content.  With so many receiving options how can he not?  Plus, the Cowboys backs are just horrendous. 

Kitna is my guy today.

Okay, enough about my team.

I get it.  You're here because you want to win.

And I'm here to help you win with all sorts of fantasy football tips, updates and advice.
